UPM has been listed as the industry leader in the Dow Jones European and World Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for 2015-2016. UPM is listed in the indices for the fourth year in a row.
“Being listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index is a recognition for excellent environmental performance, responsible sourcing practices and strict corporate governance, but also a sign of successful communications and engagement with our stakeholders. We actively share our activities with our stakeholders and their impacts on the environment, people and economy, which has been positively noted”, says Pirkko Harrela, Executive Vice President, Stakeholder Relations.
The annual Corporate Sustainability Assessment is conducted by an investment specialist RobecoSAM, and is based on a rigorous analysis of economic, environmental and social performance of the world’s leading companies, assessing issues covering climate change strategies, supply chain standards, labour practices, corporate governance and risk management. The DJSI follows a best-in-class approach, recognising companies across all industries that outperform their peers in sustainability metrics.
